    Hello Everyone,
    This is my blog http://seobasicwithmee.com/, i purchase the domain from WordPress but still i am using the wordpress web hosting. Now i want to change the hosting as well, so my question is will it be possible that i can do this without any loss?
    I dont want to loss my 50 articles and my Blog PR.

    The blog I need help with is seobasicwithmee.com.


    Yes you’ll be able to take your wordpress.com bought domain elsewhere (with changing your name server), but it is preferable to transfer your domain to whoever you are going to host with.

    Domain Transfer to new Registrar: http://en.support.wordpress.com/domains/transfer-domain-registration/
    Changing name server: http://en.support.wordpress.com/domains/change-name-servers/

    Since you aren’t changing your domain, the PR will not change. As for the articles, they are currently hosted on wordpress.com, so if you go elsewhere (to wordpress.org) you’ll need to export them from your blog here, and then import them at your new blog.

    Importing (you’ll need to look at the wordpress.org support documents for help, if that’s where you are going)



    Is there any way through which i can buy the hosting as well from wordpress. Because i want all the advance customization options like Google analytic s, ad sense etc… without any loss of my data.


    Sadly no, wordpress doesn’t provide hosting (apart from the free one of course). You won’t actually lose any data if you export from your current site.

    If you aren’t feeling so comfortable with transferring everything yourself, you can actually pay WordPress for a guided Transfer for $129, they’ll install everything, transfer everything over (including followers), point your domain to the right place and even help you out for two weeks with any questions you have. More on that here: http://en.support.wordpress.com/guided-transfer/

    You can find the ‘recommended’ hosting providers here: http://get.wp.com/hosting/

    With google analytics we have stats here which do a pretty good job. And for adsense, you can sign up for wordads since you have your own domain: http://wordads.co/
